What people are saying about Port Arthur
Our guide Andrew made the tour .. he was so knowledgeable and interesting... he made each place we stopped at a wonderful story full of ghosts and their sightings .. he was able to present the ghost tour in the best possible way .. I would thoroughly recommend Andrew and I would hope to get him again when I go back to do one of the other tours.. he certainly is a credit and an asset to the Port Arthur visitor centre. He was able to keep everyone’s attention and interest for the whole tour .. he certainly gave clear and concise instructions at the start as to what was acceptable and what was not .. well done, congratulations to Andrew We went on the night of Thursday 6th June 3019 Thank you
My husband and I went on the Ghost Tour 27/12/18, it was the first time I have been to the historic sight since my 13th Birthday & we had such fun! We even caught a few things on camera which were not visible to the naked eye, and we have sent them in to be analysed, creepy spooky pics that make your spine shiver! We will definitely go again when we are On The Island. Such gloriously tended gardens and trees! We were made to feel so welcome and with huge thanks to all Staff, and our tour guide, and to our fellows who shared this scary evening with us! Bless! Happy 2019!!! Bonnie and Sabeeh
The site is very spread out,but there are courtesy vehicles that can drop you at each one. Powerful history and you learn a lot. Would recommend it to all. There are a few different tours to enjoy we visited the site for about 5 hours then went back at night for the ghost tour which was really good. The site entry allows you two days if needed to see it all. Staff are very knowledgeable and ready to answer any questions you have. We enjoyed a nice lunch. Would suggest getting there early as it gets very busy.
We had a great time. The guide, Glenn was very good. He created a great atmosphere and had some excellent stories which he mixed with humour to add to a great experience. My 13 year old son was picked as a lantern bearer which made his day. My 9 year old son walked with his brother and had a great time. The atmosphere was creepy. The stories were sad, scary sometimes funny and beautifully told. We would do it again
Amazing views of the highest sea cliffs in the southern hemisphere. Great commentary. The only down side was the long time, no real access to food (although we were offered a few biscuits). The tour was nearly 4 hours and I was hungry and thirsty by the end. However, due to the great weather we had, we had an extended trip which was a bonus.
